Parliament’s vote to join in the bombing of targets in Syria, with a majority made respectable only with the backing of 66 pro-war Labour MPs, will do nothing to defeat Islamic State (Isis) and everything to stoke international tensions and a drive to war.
The vote also shows once again how out of touch Parliament is. A majority of UK citizens remain opposed to the bombing and most do not think that they will make Britain’s streets any safer from an Isis-led attack along the lines that took place in Paris last month. In fact, the opposite view is held by a clear majority.
In Scotland, 75% of the population were opposed to the bombing while similar figures were reported from cities like Liverpool.
